"The congress has vested certain Authority over certain parts of communication in the interstate commerce commission and there is, in addition, the agency known as --the federal radio commission. .

Senator Anderson, the sponsor, declared his bill was "born of the injustices I have seen perpetuated for 20 years," and asserting it to be "unfair to fliscriminato against Iowa boys and girls on. account, of their creed," said he had some 200 letters as evidence of- such discrimination.

The house struck from the bill a section which would have required that all plates to be fastened to cars by a locking device to prevent removal o£ the plates except through destruction of the device.

The bill fixed the maximum salaries of ¥250 a month for the superintendent, 5175 for the supervisors and ?125 for the patrolmen.

A motion by Representative Al- csch of Plymouth to table the bill failed by a 54 to 45 vote.
